All’s bloom­ing again

Ayrshire Post - - News -

Kind- hearted peo­ple have sent do­na­tions to help re­build an out­door learn­ing cen­tre trashed by van­dals.

Last month the Post told how heart­less yobs de­stroyed Holm­ston Pri­mary’s gar­den area, leav­ing pupils and staff with a ma­jor clean- up job.

Van­dals tipped over plant pots and fur­ni­ture, wreck­ing the out­door fa­cil­ity which the school worked hard to create.

The van­dals even snapped the ap­ple tree which was kindly donated to the school.

But, thanks to the Post, do­na­tions of rasp­berry bushes and a £ 50 cheque from Fore­hill, Holm­ston and Ma­son­hill Com­mu­nity Coun­cil have been gifted to help re­build the gar­den.

The school’s Deputy Head Teacher Katie Reid told of the pupils’ dis­ap­point­ment when faced with clean­ing up their hard gar­den­ing work.

But now the pupils will look for­ward to blos­som­ing rasp­berry bushes in the com­ing sum­mer months.

Katie said: “We’ve got it ti­died up now and we’ve just been donated some rasp­berry bushes and £ 50 from the com­mu­nity coun­cil to help us put some more flow­ers and plants into our con­tain­ers.”

The Deputy Head told pupils the good news of the cheque gift on Fri­day at as­sem­bly.
